The new  year is knocking at the doors and like last year you want to make the same resolution again, of losing weight and looking fab. But the thought of last year’s resolution failure makes you skeptical about your own resolve. So are all new year resolutions made to be broken? No, if you do not make promises that are unattainable. So if exercising for one hour daily seems impossible, do it for 30 minutes, divided into three sessions of 10 minutes each. Here are some more easy ideas, read on.

Start your day with lemon water to give a boost to your metabolism.

 

Reduce your caffeine intake to 2-3 cups a day.

 

If you can’t have your tea or coffee without sugar, go for natural substitutes like stevia.

 

Snack on nuts like roasted almonds, walnuts and peanuts. But do not have more than a handful a day.

 

Snack on bananas, oranges, walermelon, papaya and any fruit of your choice.  But don’t go beyond two a day.

 

Drink 12 glasses of water a day.

 

Go for skimmed milk.

 

Limit your intake of sugary drinks and fast food to just once a week.

 

Instead of gorging on greasy canteen food, carry your own lunch to work.

 

Include exercise in your routine. Climb steps, walk briskly post lunch, play badminton, tennis or any game of your choice, dance, learn aerobics, zumba or any active workout of your choice.
